    This happened to me too. I think there is an Enneagram turning point where it all starts to click and becomes startlingly clear. I "got it" when I first read it, but I didn't really, so I gave up on it for a while. I revisited it much later and when I finally figured out my proper type it made much more sense. MBTI never seems to make any more sense to me than it ever did and I have known about it longer. It's not bad, but it's not that good either. I think it's unfortunate most people don't hang on until they have an Enneagram epiphany.

    Well said. I see so many posts here where people are discounting the Enneagram simply because they don't agree with their test scores, when in fact they don't take the test correctly because they are in denial over some very real aspects of their personality and motives. The Enneagram takes patience to learn. And I for one did not learn my type based on test results, but rather a lot of reflection. It doesn't happen overnight. But it is so worth it!
